Kamara Wants Salaries Of Public Officials Sliced To Support Education
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, August 29 (LINA) - Press Union of Liberia (PUL) President K. Abdullai Kamara has recommended that the salaries of government officials be sliced and the amount realized used for the education of Liberian youths.

Kamara is also requesting that the 2016/2017 fiscal budget be reorganized to ensure that “the national cake is distributed in a manner that serves the greatest interest of all Liberians.”

He made the recommendation in his keynote address at the graduation ceremony of the All God’s High School held in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor over the weekend.

"Regrettably, we have 73 Representatives who are paid almost as much as the President of the United States of America, yet they fail every day to pass the very budget that will even seek to legitimize their sad earnings," he pointed out.

Kamara made the statement against the backdrop that members of the National Legislature have in recent times been more involved in the ongoing internal wrangling at the House of Representatives in total disregard of the passage of the 2016/2017 fiscal budget.

The PUL boss observed that government actors have over the years devoted more time to discussing issues such as corruption in disregard to key functions of the state.

Meanwhile, Kamara has urged Liberian students to strive to make Liberia better, noting that students must realize that their contribution to Liberia should begin with their education coupled with honesty and love for country.
